About the Author

LIFE magazine was founded by Henry Luce in 1936 and chronicled every aspect of the human condition through the end of the 20th century. Gordon Parks (1912-2006) was one of the early Life photographers and among the most esteemed photographers of our time. He was also an acclaimed poet, filmmaker and composer who published several books with Bulfinch, including the acclaimed Half Past Autumn (1997). John Loengard is a veteran LIFE photographer and a chronicler of LIFE's illustrious history. He received the Henry Luce Lifetime Achievement Award for 2004 from Time, Inc.
